was six-years old. he was a special education uden hisaren issd a statement. we take great solace that dylan died in the loving arms of his favorite teacher, the special education teacher, anne marie murphy. the teachers in that school, the principal, psychologist, the teachers that die protecting their children, saving their children, comforting their children, those who survived, they are true heroes and they have not received the recognition, in my judgment, that they deserve. i point out that every one of them is a public-school teacher, a group that has been condemned, vilified, and denigrated by all sorts of people. >> do wonderbout ts nes we are making about mental illness and violence. we have had a number of gun violence in the district of columbia where people have been killed by firearms, prince george's county as well. are you suggesting to me that everyone who pulled a trigger is mentally ill? is that the suggestion? >> no. >> in mass killings, if you look at the virginia tech guide, and jared loughner, he was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, which you could see
it as much as we do. so, i think full compliance is the goal. and to have education, to have free access assessment being done. and then to follow-up by those that are challenged economically, to have loans and to have grants that are made available to have all of them participate in this program is incredibly good for the city. and i think it will help many of the small businesses understand their obligations to respond to these better, but also help them get into compliance better. so, i'm glad to launch this program here on irving street with supervisor chu who has been a really big champion for this. but we have many members of our business community that have also been asking us to do something positive about this. and not let these small businesses become victimized in these drive-by lawsuits. to do what we can to make it a positive thing. so, i'm so glad that joaquin has come aboard to help us. he, having headed up the neighborhood services program for years, now has his talent with todd in making sure that all of the small businesses along these commercial corridors have access t

was educated in a private school in england amongst people who had been trained for sort of banking or the army or business. as i came towards the end of my education, i thought i must find something or i'll never meet any of these people again. [laughter] tavis: [laughter] i have those thoughts at least once a week, but i digress. >> i wanted to be a gypsy. i mean, at that time, i was in the breaks from school. i was traveling with my guitar and singing around the place and just sort of busking, we used to call it. i, in my sort of unreal mind, thought i'd like to be in the circus, in the traveling fun fairs, as we call them. i don't know what you call them. what do you call fairs where there are merry-go-rounds, you have the big wheels and all that? tavis: same thing. >> fun fairs, or in the theater. tavis: right. >> i went and looked at a circus and i looked at the accommodation and i thought, oh, a bit small. i'm not sure i could do with that. i was too middle class, you know. i needed the possibility of perhaps having a mortgage and a house and a marriage and a family. so then i looked at
is depressing, nonetheless. the chances of many of the young and well-educated have improved since the collapse of communism. yet, there remain a minority. for the less advantaged, the danger of falling through the social security net has become a very real one. in the past, the state used to step in. nowadays, there is just not the money. > the association of the blind has a budget of 500,000 euros a year for the whole of bulgaria. that is made up of the association's rental income and state funding. we're expected to look after 16,800 non-sighted people across the country with that -- it is impossible. and >> it is time for a break. he goes to meet his wife in her small shop around a corner. she manages to run the shop, even though she is blind. with her humor and her energy, she encourages him to carry on in these difficult times. >> most blind people still think the state and the blind association should look after them. that is no longer possible. they have to change their mentality. they have to start looking for work even though it is very difficult. we will help them, of course, but the
education, that person should be considered literate and should able to register to vote. those of us in the student nonviolent coordinating committee took the position that the only qualification for being able to register to vote in america should be that of age and residency, nothing more or anything less. we wanted a much stronger bill. but the whole idea of the march was not to support a particular piece of legislation. it was a march for jobs and freedom. it was a coalition of conscience to say to the congress and say to the president of the united states, "you must act." we didn't think that the proposed bill was commensurate to all of the suffering, to the beatings, to the jailing, to the killing that had occurred in the south. amy goodman: congressman john lewis. he's just written a new book called across that bridge: life lessons and a vision for change. i'll continue the interview with him in a moment. [break] amy goodman: "ain't gonna let nobody turn me round," the sncc freedom singers, a group that traveled the country singing and fundraising for the student nonviolent co

. but i do believe in education. i believe we should invest in our education systems. smoker -- smaller class is. -- now one high a capacity schools because they produce morons. the great and the good want their kids to have the best. you mentioned something that i dis agree with. the reason why american consumers consume more than europeans is not a cause of some kind of punishment -- fundamental cultural difference. what you have -- first, america was the only country that had been effectively untouched by the war. so you had more consumption for durables. i am not sure that americans -- naturally, americans would be the first to enjoy them. then, after that, what you have is a massive reduction in the real wage, the real median wage. i do not know if you know that. today we do not have a real median wage that is anywhere near where it was in 1976. -- 1972. what has been the effect between 1970's and 2008 is that living standards were being pushed into the ground, hours were being expanded to make ends meet. real hourly wages were declining. they were working longer hours. output enor
products within a few months. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get th

have requested apparently that she pay back that $66,000 they spent on her education. could she be forced to do so? >> listen, the bottom line is that one thing does not necessarily relate to the other. when it relates to stalking and abusive behavior, that's one thing. that was certainly within the court's jurisdiction. when you're talking about prior things that were paid for your daughter and then you say because i cat control you anymore, i want to claw back and take that money, you know, it's not likely that as a result of that she should have to pay it back. furthermore, what we have to understand is that the whole issue of them paying had to do, you can argue, with control. >>> food, family, fun, what's all that? a recipe for success if you're in the restaurant business. at least that's what martin savidge found out when he traveled to cleveland to visit one of our 100 places where the locals eat. >> reporter: i'm martin savidge, and i grew up in cleveland. trust me, if you're looking to eat where the clevelander eat, it doesn't get any more clevelander than here. for mor
